About Dave & Angela Barth
My wife and I first found and fell in love with Marco Island while driving around Florida in 1993. Back then all we could do was dream we might get back there someday. In April of 2014 we stayed in the Apollo for our 25th anniversary trip. Well, we still loved it and in December we returned and bought a little piece of paradise... unit 1003 in The Apollo. I am a retired fire fighter and my wife is a teacher in New Jersey. We have 2 children, 21 yo Jake and 19 yo Rachel. In a few short years the kids will be off on their own and we will be retired in Marco Island, until then we are fortunate enough to be able to share Marco Island with our family and friends and our friends we don't know yet. 'You can't make old friends.'
Dave & Angela Barth purchased this Condo in 2015
Why Dave & Angela Barth chose Marco Island
Location, location, location. The Apollo offers everything the vacationing couple or small family could want. Everything in the complex is conveniently located. Short walk to the beach, pool, hot tub, fitness center, tennis, laundry and on-site bar/restaurant. Pride in ownership resounds throughout the building. Located in the desirable South Marco area, access to restaurants and other conveniences is easy.
What makes this Condo unique

The best place to stay for a vacation on Marco Island
Everything about our stay at the condo was great. Very easy to book and check in and out. Everything you need to live and enjoy your stay there is provided (save for the food you need to get from a grocery store). It was our home away from home.
Beach towels, chairs, beach umbrellas, tennis rackets and balls, fishing poles, coolers, and everything you need for the beach down below are in the entrance closet.
Our flight into Fort Meyers was later at night and the drive in our rental car to the condo was about 50 minutes. By the time we got there it was later at night and we had to run to the grocery store so we didn't get to enjoy the view that first night. However, when we opened the curtains our first morning there it was such a spectacular top floor view of the Gulf and beach below. What a great welcoming!!!
It was such a fantastic way to start every morning with a cup of coffee watching the pelicans, egrets, seagulls, skimmers and many other birds flying along the beach and open water from the balcony.
The weather was fantastic and the water was crystal clear. We swam every day and watched the sun set every evening and the stars at night from the beach. We saw the dolphins swimming back and forth from the balcony...we could see their silhouettes through the water and see them come up every so often.
The condo was clean and had everything we needed to live there during our stay. It really felt like our home away from home. We loved it so much that we will definitely be back. Booking this condo was better than any hotel stay because it really feels like being at home on the beach. It's close to anything you want or need, from grocery stores to restaurants, jet ski tours, boat tours, shopping, etc. yet because the condo faces the beach you feel like you're living on the beach. We got to park our rental car in the covered parking garage right near the front door of the complex, in the shade (important considering it was sunny and in the 90's the entire time we were there). Everyone was so nice to us there. A fantastic getaway.
We got quick replies to any questions, and it was such a great experience and we highly recommend a stay at this condo.
Enjoyed our stay. Dave and Angela were responsive to our questions. Love the location!
